You are significant.

There might have been someone in your life that told you different.  Here’s proof that they were wrong: 

NASA recently posted a photo of Earth in their series “Blue Marble”  They’re calling it "most Amazing High Definition Image of Earth” you’ve ever seen. 

It’s so detailed.  You can see mountains, rivers, beaches.  It’s beautiful.  And to think that we know the One who created this Earth, and it’s the same One who created you with such detail and great care. 

The bible says that, (paraphrasing Psalm 139:13-14) “God knit you together in your mother’s womb, you are wonderfully made.”

When you knit, it takes time.  Each stitch is intentional and perfect. 

You were not a mistake.  I happen to think that He created this beautiful just for you to live on it.

Just Say Yes

You are more valuable than you think.

Saw this YouTube Video last night…it’s the latest by a poet named Jefferson Bethke…he did that Jesus is Greater than Religion video…and this one about marriage.

It’s no secret that the state of marriage seems to be well…not so good…  but what hit me like a ton of bricks…was the realization that putting your worth and value on what another person, a spouse, isn’t ever going to work.

The first marriage you have is between you and Jesus. 

Here’s what he said,

“Disney movies and chick flicks, they've put is in a weird position.   They've distorted our reality because they are actually fiction.  From the cross he looks you in the eye and says I'm taking it for my bride.   When you trust in me you no longer have to hide. Because of me it is finished. You've been made new.  His death was a proposal. He wanted you no matter the cost.  Where some guys propose on a knee. Jesus proposed on a cross."

All you have to do is say, yes.
